T-shirts

Postby Toft » Thu Dec 08, 2016 11:55 am

I'm planning to start a T-shirt company.  I have several questions.  But before I ask(so you know where I'm coming from) I want you to know that I am only a designer.  And I have very little business experience.

s:

1. What is the best way to break into the market? Do I open a store? Or should I do everything online? Or do I try to go through big department stores(such as Urban outfitters, etc.)?

2. I would like to know if it is better to print out of the country?  My wife is Brazilian, and we thought it might be good to print there. If so, do you have any ideas of where in Brazil would be a good place to print?

3. How do I protect my designs?

4. Actually, this should be the first question...what is the best way to start this type of business?  Especially that I have limited funds?

I thank you in advance for answering my questions.

Serge:  I need to address your questions by starting with

#4:  The BEST way to start ANY business is to write, or have written for you, a business plan.  Might I suggest you visit the following website for info on, and an outline of, a typical business plan: www.businessbeatlive.com and click on The Business Plan Group.          With limited funds, only being a designer and having very little business experience my best advice(I am in my 39th year of counselling small businesses) would be to start a parttime home based business and run it that way for a minimum of 2 years.        Until your business is both much larger and indeed

well established have ALL printing done locally!!        Re: protecting designs you should consult with a patent and trademark attorney as to how to properly achieve that.        Also the "online" idea might work well - give it a try.
